  1. Question for Matlow and Porter: I challenge you to ask the Mom’s group for their URL address linking detailed book reports of concern. It’s definitely not anti-gay. It’s pure and extreme vulgar sexual actions and beliefs, way too extreme for our school age children. It is truly shocking. I cant imagine my Democrat parental friends approving this material. I ask Steve to reach out to Moms and review their org’s book summary

  2. Don’t worry Pat.
    Unless you have a collection of bow ties, Disney passes or Out magazines, Shev isn’t gonna be breaking into your house.

  3. So if Shev Jones breaks into my home during the middle of the night or comes after me with a knife, I should have to try and retreat? With crime at it’s worse levels now isn’t the time to restrict a person’s right to protect himself or handcuff the cops. So if Shev really wants to fight crime he should take the fight to the criminal not the victims of crime.

    It is called a very smart, savvy, educated, proactive, successful political maneuver. Doesn’t “stink” to me… rather, it is fresh air and sunshine and a strong accomplished voice that is so needed. Sour grapes make whine much?

  5. 970,000 gallons of Sewage did not just burst straight up out of the Ground, it had to of done some Tunneling along the way. Has the area been checked to make sure no Cave In’s will happen in the near future in that area?

    Gov. DeSantis, “the Trump administration announced a new plan to increase tariffs on imports from Mexico. On June 10th, the U.S. will begin implementing a 5 percent tariff, which will increase to 10 percent on July 1st, and then increase by an additional 5 percent each month after that up to 25 percent.” ……. I consider that making Mexico help pay for the Wall. It’s a “Round-A-Bout” way to do it but, that’s how I look at it.

    Sen. Shevrin Jones MUST be a Democrat. Not only do we need the “Stand Your Ground” Law, we need to EXPAND IT.

  6. Didn’t Laurie finagle a move to get the job to begin with? Dee Dee rasmussen handed it to her a few days before qualifying. Stinks to high heaven, it is a blue leaning seat
